Construction is ascending steadily at 9 DeKalb Avenue in Downtown Brooklyn, the first supertall project in the outer boroughs. The reinforced concrete superstructure currently stands around 28 stories tall, more than one-third of its 73-story total. Designed by SHoP Architects and developed by JDS, the 1,066-foot-tall skyscraper will yield 425 rental apartments and 150 condominiums.
Curtain wall work is progressing on the Tin Building, a 53,000-square-foot market structure on the rebuilt Pier 17 in the South Street Seaport District. Designed by SHoP Architects and developed by Howard Hughes Corporation with Plaza Construction as construction manager, the project will feature a seafood-themed market by Jean-Georges Vongerichten, the main tenant of the property.
SHoP Architects‘ 1,428-foot-high residential supertall at 111 West 57th Street is getting closer to the finish line. Developed by JDS Development, Property Markets Group, and Spruce Capital Partners, the Billionaires’ Row skyscraper stands as the world’s most slender building with a height-to-width ratio of 24:1. The Midtown structure is also the second-tallest building in the city by roof height, and the third-tallest by architectural height behind the 1,776-foot-tall One World Trade Center and the 1,550-foot-tall Central Park Tower.
9 DeKalb Avenue has made significant vertical progress since our May update, nearly doubling in height. Designed by SHoP Architects and developed by JDS, the 73-story supertall will reach 1,066 feet above Downtown Brooklyn and will eventually secure the title of tallest structure in the outer boroughs.
Work is several floors above street level and rising at 9 DeKalb Avenue, a 1,066-foot-tall residential skyscraper in Downtown Brooklyn. Designed by SHoP Architects and developed by JDS, 73-story structure will become the first supertall in Brooklyn and the outer boroughs.
